Fresh Seafood Anytime

Seafood meals are my favorite. Something about seafood reminds me of home and summers spent on the Adriatic Sea riviera. Fish and seafood always sounds great for lunch or dinner. I love going out to seafood restaurants but since I have a busy schedule that’s very rare and only reserved for special occasions. Recently I have discovered Bumble Bee’s SuperFresh® line of products and it has been a life changing culinary experience for me. Now I can serve my family delicious seafood meals on a regular basis- without having to leave home!

Bumble Bee SuperFresh® is a complete line of naturally-seasoned, restaurant quality, “fish-forward” prepared seafood solutions for the home. It raises the bar for what seafood lovers can expect from frozen food! Bumble Bee SuperFresh seafood is no mess, and no fuss; just pure perfection, time after time. Their premium Salmon and Tilapia come with their own parchment paper baking pouch and go from freezer to table in under 25 minutes. High in protein, richly seasoned with pure and simple ingredients that let the fish shine through! I could hardly wait until it was on my plate while I was cooking. The smell that filled the house was amazing and the flavors were beyond words. The biggest reason I fell in love with Bumble Bee SuperFresh line is that Bumble Bee SuperFresh® offers unparalleled quality. The seafood is “fish forward” – with nothing to hide under heavy breading, sauces, or a long list of unpronounceable ingredients.

The meals can be made in less than 30 minutes which is great. I can have lunch ready quickly on my days home from work to have a middle of the day getaway from the honey do list. The new line is frozen fresh and comes with specially made parchment paper envelopes for each fillet so the fish stays juicy while baking quickly. Suddenly I was a top chef.

The first creation I made was the Tilapia with Garlic and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It was so easy to enjoy a delicious Premium Tilapia fillet! Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Tilapia has ground black pepper, fresh garlic, sea salt and extra olive oil – making every flaky bite fantastic! For me it naturally made sense to jazz it up with some salsa and pair it with a side of spanish rice and beans for a tex-mex flavor that would make an amazing lunch.

The next one I tried was Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garden Pesto. Salmon is my favorite fish. I could literally eat salmon every day. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Salmon with Garden Pesto is richly satisfying with Parmesan cheese, basil, almonds and a touch of garlic. It is so flavorful, made with all natural ingredients and has no preservatives. I paired it with a fresh garden salad with tuscan dressing and cheese tortellini in a light red sauce. The whole meal felt like an upscale dinner I’d eat at a restaurant but was super affordable and quick to prepare in my own home.

A long time ago I had a friend and I told them seafood is awesome, but they disagreed. My response was let me cook you a seafood meal and change your mind. Now I wish I had Bumble Bee SuperFresh® to help. Unfortunately I can not cook for everyone, but I can do something better. I want you to visit the Bumble Bee SuperFresh® website for a coupon so you can try these delicious SuperFresh® products for yourself! Leave a comment below telling me which product you’d try first.

Easy Meals With Flatout Flatbread & StarKist Tuna {$50 Target Gift Card Giveaway}

(Disclosure: I received a gift card and products but all thoughts are my own.)

You all know how much I love easy meals and there’s nothimg much easier than a sandwich. Even better is a sandwich I can make with items I got on sale so that’s why I’m really happy to share about a great deal at Super Target. From now through October 14th, when you buy Flatout Flatbread at Super Target, you get a free pouch of StarKist tuna! It’s like hitting the mealtime bullseye—great ingredients, great taste, and great value!

I’ve had Flatout before and love it so much more than bread. Bread gets soggy {ick!} but Flatout doesn’t seem to which is great. Flatout is also low in fat and a good source of fiber. I’ve used it to make Southwestern Chicken Paninis, Crispy Onion Teriyaki Chicken Sandwiches, and a Cucumber Turkey Club.

This is the first time that I have had tuna from a pouch instead of a can. I’d seen it sitting on the shelf at the store but never purchased it. I like how it makes the tuna portable and they are all less than 110 calories, too. The flavor options were great as well- so much flavor in one pouch!

This week we threw dinner together in less than 5 minutes after we got home from soccer practice. Sinisa mixed a pouch of tuna with relish, mayo, and diced onions and then put it on some flatout, sprinkled it with shredded cheese, and dinner was done. Easy peasy!
